What does the phrase "MISCELLEANOUS CHANCERY CLASSIFICATION" mean as it relates to a court case?

Probably what we call a "miscellaneous remedy" case here - meaning it's not a criminal case, and not a normal "law" or small claims case (asking for money), not a juvenile case, not a divorce case, not a probate case - it's "something else."

Often it would be a case asking for some kind of injunctive relief - an order of protection, a restraining order. It could be lots of things.

Edit: Just realized you're in the Chicago area. Here's what the Cook County Circuit Clerk lists as their chancery cases:

Quote:
The Chancery Division hears matters concerning:

"injunctions
"class actions
"mortgage foreclosures
"name changes
"declaratory judgments
"contract matters
"creditors' rights
"liens
"construction of wills and trusts
"trusteeships
"receiverships
"dissolutions of partnerships and corporations
"statutory and administrative reviews
"vehicle impoundment
It could be any of those, I guess They seem to throw probate in with chancery, which it is, but most places separate that out.

Thanks!

It's DuPage but probably similar.

The judgement is what I would consider huge (high 7 figures that explains why it wasn't small claims court ) so I'm just wondering what it could be. From what I can tell, it looks like the person that filed (and won) was some type of stock trader so my guess is it's regarding something with services that he provided.
